“good food and beer - pretty authentic”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We've been here already a few times and their food was always good. It's pretty authentic and always absolutely enough on your plate. Their beer on tap is also refreshing and cold.

As the name says: it's a German/Swiss place. So rather go for their German/Swiss food than for their pizzas. They are ok - but certainly not comparable to the other food. But then: you don't go into a pizzeria and ask for a schnitzel either, right!?

We live 1 hour away and wouldn't take the drive just to eat there; but when being in the area it's always a good place to stop and have lunch/dinner.

“Overhyped”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

A pizza place that serves some schnitzel & sausages and a handful of German beers. Pales in comparison to a real German place such as Brats Bros. in Studio City, the Red Lion in Silver Lake or the Wirtshaus on La Brea.

“Memories of Germany”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Visited the Chalet with friends, one of whom was from Germany - the hostess speaks German so we felt like "natives!" Great sausage, including hard to find Weisswurst, absolutely delicious. Good service, nice beer and wine selection, and an excellent location with plenty of parking in the rear.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Very tasty German and Swiss dishes. Good German Beer on Tap. Very friendly family atmosphere. Plenty of parking behind resturaunt. Ate here twice during my last trip and enjoyed the cuisine. A little pricy.

“Great Food.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

Within walking distance of a few Holiday Inns and nearby LAX.
Arrived on a Wednesday evening for dinner. Restaruant was full with movie and dinner guests.
Managed to find us a table and service was very good. Drinks and food arrived promptly and was very good.
Alpine platter had 4 different nears and 4 cheeses, pretzel pickles as well.
I had the snitzel with red cabbage and enjoyed it.
Ended the meal with an Apfelstrudel and ice cream.

Despite being full with customers everyone had drinks and food coming to their tables.

Enjoyed the meal.
